Yarn Love

 I was organizing my yarn 
and realized how beautiful it is
all gathered together!
 I am slowly getting my art room cleaned 
and sorted and I'm taking pics.
So I will be posting those soon!

Bye for now!

Baby Bunny Love

 We have had bunnies living under our deck
ever since we moved into the house 8 years ago,
but never did I see any baby bunnies! 
Until this year that is!
 I know there are at least two of them,
but I can't tell them apart.
 This one was casually eating his breakfast,

 when he saw a cozy spot

right in the middle of this bush!
He crawled in there and just sat for a few minutes.
So cute! 
Bye for now!

Vintage Sewing Book

Here are some of the great illustrations
from the vintage sewing book I found at the thrift.

 I think they are so sweet!

 And I think this book is going to be very handy
as I progress with my sewing projects!

 Bye for now!

What I Wore

 What I wore for a hot day:
Dress: found at thrift and altered
Belt: thrift
Sandals: thrift
Vintage purse: ebay

Found this dress a little while ago
and finally got around to altering it,
it was a couple of sizes to big.
I think it turned out great,
and it's perfect for hot weather!

Bye for now!

Thrift Store Finds

 I love it when I find something at the thrift 
that I really didn't look for,
but is something I can really use. 
When I found the sewing book shown above, 
I realized it would be a perfect guide
to help me learn sewing, even if it is vintage.
And for only $2, it's much cheaper than
the one I was dreaming about at the book store!
I will show some pix of the great illustrations inside 
on a future post.
And, I found some great sewing notions too!

 I was looking for some different colored belts,
and I found this lovely red one!

 And I found some great Gap jeans
with sweet embroidered flowers 
and mushrooms on them.

Bye for now!

Through the Looking Glass

 Every now and then, 
I find Smoke looking intently in the mirror.
I wonder, is he admiring his reflection?
Or is he wondering who the cat is?
 Is he trying to enter that alternate universe?

 Or just happy to see his old friend,
mirror cat?
Bye for now!

Colorful Cards

This group of vintage playing cards 
has some bright colored birds.

And cute gingham girls.

Hearts and flowers and trains.

And cats and roosters!
Bye for now!

Thrifty Finds!

My last visit to the thrift was crazy good, 
look at the amazing goodies I found!
The more I look at these embroidered owls
the more I'm in love!

And I almost passed up the calendar, silly me!

Beautiful pillow cases, fun hangers and more fabric! 
Bye for now!

Sketches of the Week

Still in a Christmas and winter mood with my art, and still working on my technique with gouache. It's a much trickier medium than I ...
